Fiji Rugby: Nasoko Is Confident

Fiji Airways Fijian 7s captain Kalione Nasoko remains con­fident after their good perfor­mance on Day One of the USA 7s in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Speaking to World Rugby yester­day, Nasoko said they were taking things one day at a time.

“We’ll go for our recovery and at the hotel we’ll talk with our coach­es, have a good sleep before we play Australia,” he said.

Nasoko also hinted that they were­ focused on completing their final pool match before they turn their attention to the Cup quarterfinals.

Australian 7s captain Lewis Hol­land said as a team they were equally confident of winning in Las Vegas.

“This is sevens rugby and any­thing can happen as all teams are here to win,” he said.

Coach Tim Walsh said their de­fence and ruck play were the high­light of their performance, which they hoped to continue today.

The second placed team in Pool D will face series leaders New Zea­land in the Cup quarterfinal.

Fiji were to play Australia at 7:52 this morning in their final Pool D match at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
